The term Galois representation is frequently used when the G-module is a vector space over a field or a free module over a ring, but can also be used as a synonym for G-module. The study of Galois modules for extensions of local or global fields is an important tool in number theory.

### Hodge-Tate weights of etale cohomology groups

Given a smooth algebraic variety $X$ over a number field $F$, its $p$-adic cohomology groups $H^i(X \times_F \bar F, \mathbb Q_p)$ carries an action of $\mathrm{Gal}(\bar F/F)$, which gives a ...
